The Four Oaks Christmas Parade will look a little different this year!

The set-up will be similar to a drive-through holiday lights display and will allow for spacing between parade entrants.
The parade will be down Main Street on Saturday December 5, 2020 starting at 11am.
There is no charge to participate. Donations to the Four Oaks Chamber of Commerce are kindly appreciated to help pay for expenses associated with the event. If you so choose please mail your donation to PO BOX 415, Four Oaks, NC 27524.

Welcome to the Chamber of Commerce! We look forward to working together to support the Four Oaks Community and local businesses and organizations!
Congratulations Mr. Paul Stacy Lee!
The Four Oaks Proud award is given by The Four Oaks Chamber of Commerce to individuals we feel go above and beyond for the chamber and the community of Four Oaks. When the chamber board met to discuss this year’s recipient there actually was very little discussion about who should receive the honor this year! We knew one person deserved this award. And that person is Mr. Paul Stacy Lee!
In his retirement from teaching, Stacy has worked with the Four Oaks Economic Development, served as a town commissioner and held the position of Parks & Recreation Director with the Town of Four Oaks. Stacy goes the extra mile to do things right and has put countless unpaid hours into his community, beautifying and promoting his hometown.
Stacy stops by the Chamber often and always asks what he can do to help! His willingness to assist the Chamber is so greatly appreciated.
Stacy is an amazing asset to the community of Four Oaks! He sure does make us proud!
Four Oaks welcomed visitors to the 30th Annual Acorn Festival
The Four Oaks Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with United Community Bank, hosted the 30th Annual Acorn Festival on October 12, 2019.
This year’s festival was a fun filled family day with live music, children’s activities, food trucks, antique cars, tractors and great local shopping. The Kids Zone, sponsored by Huebner Family McDonalds was a big hit with the popular Rock-Climbing Wall, amazing inflatables and trackless train rides. Camp Flintlock was a great addition to this year’s festival made possible by CommWell Health. They provided interesting activities for families to participate in including Quill & Ink writing, period dress up and authentic food preparation. Camp Flintlock also had Fife & Drum Corp performances as well as Musket Demonstrations. Johnston Health once again presented the Acorn Festival Business Expo. The Expo is a great opportunity for local businesses to participate in the festival. Attendee’s enjoyed viewing the classic cars and antique tractors on Main Street. Ira Parker won the People’s Choice Award for his 1958 Ford Fairlane and Arron Cox took home the award for his Case Tractor. The Four Oaks Middle School Choir directed by Mrs. Catherine Lavin kicked off the festivities with our National Anthem. The Louis Waymore Band and Carolina Dreamers provided great live music entertainment throughout the day!
Joan Pritchett, Four Oaks Chamber Director, was pleased by the crowd excitement with the upgrades made to the Kids Zone including the addition of Camp Flintlock. The quality of the vendors at the artisan market made for a fun shopping experience. This event is an important time for our local businesses to connect with the surrounding community. Four Oaks businesses have so much to offer the community and this was a great time for local families to learn more about them.
